Title Commercial Building Partners Catalyze Energy Efficient Buildings Across the Nation.

Abstract In 2008 the US Department of Energy (DOE) launched the Commercial Buildings Partnership (CBP) project to accelerate market adoption of commercially available energy saving technologies into the design process for new and upgraded commercial buildings. The CBP represents a unique collaboration between industry leaders and DOE to develop high performance buildings as a model for future construction and renovation. CBP was implemented in two stages. This paper focuses on lessons learned at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) with companies starting in 2008 and discusses some partner insights from projects joining the program later. In 2008, PNNL and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory recruited CBP partners that own large portfolios of buildings. The labs provide assistance to the partners' design teams and make a business case for energy investments. From the owner's perspective, a sound investment results in energy savings based on the corporate prototypical design (new construction) or existing operations (retrofit).
